The Return of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of 13 short stories. In some ways these stories are different than the others as they were a bit later than some and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had improved in his writing greatly.While the stories and the main character are certainly known what is decaying is the ability of modern readers to enjoy the original manuscripts. The language is archaic and full of local slang that is challenging to understand. In this version more than 900 footnotes have been added to explain the original text and help the modern reader enjoy them as much as generations that have gone by. Hopefully these stories will continue to entertain the readers of the future.
